Sour milk in Manchester

12/13/2017
More
There are still cuts and bruises from the Manchester derby, but most of these seem to have happened in the City changing room, AFTER the game. Plus we search the media to find the truth about, well about Jose Mourinho's dry cleaning bill. The fans are angry, but we wonder what the older generation would have made of it all, and also ask just how young this squad Pep Guardiola has assembled is. And Romelu Lukaku is back on target again. Sort of. On The Left Side is written and produced by...

Klopp's bite, Ronaldo's victory and Wenger's headache

12/11/2017
More
Ronaldo surprised no one by winning footballer of the year for the fifth time. Meanwhile Jurgen Klopp showed off his new teeth before sinking them into everyone who thought that was a penalty in the Merseryside Derby. Down the M62 Noel Gallagher was giving Michael Owen a run for his money in pundit of the year for the Manchester Derby. Elsewhere, Wenger has a headache and seemingly unhappy with his side income from potato crisps, Gary Lineker auditions for a part in BBC remake. On The...

Pep vs Pogba and Sunderland in the toilet

12/7/2017
More
As we get ready for the world's earliest title decider, we ask the big questions: Like does Pep Guardiola write all his Tripadvisor reviews in Capital letters? Is Paul Pogba in the Mafia? And what would happen if Jose did that? We also send some wet wipes to the stadium of light where things are just crap, particularly for one black cat fan.

Big Sams Big Everton Job and England World Cup Panamania

12/3/2017
More
What did Southgate do to sort out that draw for next summer, could he be any less excited about it, or indeed aware of potential hazards while talking to the press? And just when you thought Lineker had forgiven Maradonna, the two legends met again in the draw for Russia for 2018. Elsewhere Allardyce is off to a flyer at his new club, no doubt down to the extra money they've waved in his face and some other interesting promises. But just how far can he go? Who better to ask than some ex...

Allardyce on his way, Lukaku on target

11/30/2017
More
Have Everton just had their most important game EVER? Martin Keown thinks so. Big Sam has turned up to save everyone but it looks like he’s not got much to be worried about, so host Jim offers some tips if he goes out clubbing to celebrate. Lukaku is back on target but unfortunately for one Brighton defender it’s not on goal, and though Jose Mourinho seems to get his way again, surely even he can't get away with smoking at a game, even if it is a cigar. On The Left Side is written and...

Does Cantona want Pep and can God save Everton?

11/27/2017
More
Ant steps into Jims boots today and looks at the Oumar Niasse situation from many different points of view. All of which seem to come from Phil Neville. And would the manager of Algeria be the miracle the Toffees need? Plus there's a sniff of treason in the air as King Cantona makes eyes at Guardiola, and David Moyes proves he's nothing if not unprepared.

What next for Pulis and West Brom

11/22/2017
More
The Baggies pull the plug on Tony Pulis, only to realise that he may be just the man they need to keep them up. But could he be about to become a United man? That's a handyman, to take care of all the Manchester Utd first teams, first world problems. But it all sounds just a little bit seedy.

Pressure on Pulis and Robot Football

11/20/2017
More
Goals galore this weekend, Tony Pulis should be scared about his job, but despite the everyone acting like it's already happened, he is acting like he's not bothered. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are back for Man United, but was a secret safari at Carrington the reason for the Zlats speedy recovery. Plus Jim bemoans the fact that the future is not what he was promised, and a football remake of James Cameron's Terminator is on the cards. And there's a real-life Specsavers advert from a...

No Goals, No Italy, No One Cares

11/16/2017
More
A goalless draw against Brazil was great for Neymar, but he's been crying, as was Buffon after the Italian's drew a blank against Sweden and now they'll be joining the Republic on the couch at home to watch the World Cup in Russia. But have we found a manager that could inspire Scotland to victory, just like William Wallace did in Braveheart?Plus there are puns galore thanks to the unique way in which the BBC are funded.

England Impress and Moyes is on the edge

11/12/2017
More
David Moyes is taking no prisoners with his first press engagements as the new boss of West Ham. Which is probably a good thing, as he's sounding more than a little bit scary. Meanwhile, Gareth Southgate cobbled a team together at the last minute after almost everybody he picked to play for England against Germany got their mum to phone in sick. Also feeling sick at the moment is Slaven Bilic, and we have an exclusive recording of the calls he's been making to all his old players. On The...

The World's Greatest Football Manager

11/8/2017
More
David Moyes is in, Slaven Bilic is out, and Arsene Wenger is angry. Most managers retire by the time they reach their early seventies, but in this episode, we meet a man who kept going and went on to break all records. Seb Keenan speaks to Jim about winning the Champions League no less than seven times in a row, in the future.

Simon Sacked in Sunderland Shambles

11/5/2017
More
There's some good news for everyone who isn't a Sunderland fan, and even good news for sacked manager Simon Grayson. Mick Mcarthy makes us laugh but Roy Keane will probably never be happy. Same goes for Jim if you trample his flowers. He might get angry enough to get on a London Fan TV Channel...

Everyone Wants The Everton Job

11/2/2017
More
Goodison Park is swimming in job applications from pretty much everyone, including the caretaker manager. It's fair to say that Joey Barton is not a big fan of David Unsworth, no matter how much he tries to hide it. And have we found the worst place to get stitches ever? You may want to sit down as we bring you some shocking injury news from Spain. But don't worry, Jose is here to help you relax.

Bye Bye Bilic and Carabao Catastrophe

10/30/2017
More
It’s all balls according to Pep Guardiola, who is in need of a miracle, but not as much as Slaven Bilic who has his head on the West Ham chopping block despite beating Spurs in the cup. And it’s all because he’s too nice. And the Carabao Cup suffers a ‘minor’ technical glitch - but who was really behind it all?

Bye Bye Koeman, Hello secret gay footballers

10/25/2017
More
This week we stumble over the freshly slain Ronald Koeman in the killing fields of football, learn how to deal with crap Christmas presents from your relatives, and with one rag plumbing new depths, we ask if journalists know the difference between privacy and secrecy. You can probably work that one out. It's all in the latest ARIA nominated silly sports show that is #OTLS On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson for Abrupt Audio.

OTLS #322 Mour-Issey

10/22/2017
More
This week we bring you back to 1912 but it seems the FA may have been there all along. Elsewhere, Jose complains about the fact that no one complains about his complaints. At least I think that's what he was saying. And which superstar footballer may have to thank Deliveroo for his form? Just one question we will fail to answer.

There’s dancing in the streets of Newcastle and Leicester and in Leicester as someone gives up, some one storms out, and someone is kicked out. It all means one club has a lost a snake and gained a horse, while another has a Torpedo but no commentator. And it all really happened in the last few days.

It would seem qualifying for the world cup is still exciting in some places, and one commentator seems to be more interested in finding his mate. Jim reads an exciting UN report, and opens a window onto the celebrations of Egyptian fans, and into the mind of Gordon Strachan.
